Bright Morning Star


Revelation 22:16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you of these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.”


Let’s sing:

Twinkle, twinkle, little star

How I wonder what you are

Up above the world so high

Like a diamond in the sky

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are


When the blazing sun is gone,

When there’s nothing he shines upon,

Then you show your little light,

Twinkle, twinkle, through the night.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,

How I wonder what you are!


Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star is a poem put to music as a comfort to little children at bedtime; a comfort as the light is turned out for sleep. Complete darkness is said to be an ominous thing. Although I have heard where some that are blind crave complete darkness as their blindness is not quiet but lots of luminescence in view. I know people that cannot sleep unless there is little to no light. But when we are powerless to access any light, darkness can be an ominous thing. I think Christ named The Bright Morning Star is a glorious thought; a thought that illuminates much truth about the Lord Jesus Christ. 


It was a holy night on which His Light shone. The ability of a star to guide many through the ages to safe harbor parallels Christ’s guiding light to refuge. The presence of a heavenly light in a lonely moment on a trail in the woods and the realization that He transcends the heavenlies connect us to His comforting care. We have a family Christmas tree on which we place a star that is much bigger than any of the other lights on the tree. Our reminder of the eternal Bright Morning Star. 


The Bright Morning Star is the One Who will never burn out or even go dim. The Bright Morning Star is the Creator Himself and He gives, to all that would turn to Him, a comforting light forevermore.
